You can start a thread from any message to organize discussions in your channels and/or direct messages (DMs). By using threads, you can easily discuss any topic in greater detail without having to add clutter to the main view of the conversation. This way, you can easily track your discussions.

What to anticipate #

  • Threads are always connected to the original message
  • All replies to a thread won’t appear in the main view of the conversation
  • Notifications will be sent out only to those who have contributed or followed the thread
  • If you use @here and @channel in a thread, members of the conversation won’t be notified

Take a look at a short video, or read the instructions below to learn how to use threads.

Replying to a thread or starting a new one #

  1. Hover over the message you’d like to reply to
  2. Click on the reply in thread icon

  4. Send your message

Apart from following the threads and replying to them, you can also mention workspace member in a channel they are not a member of, and invite them to join the channel by clicking Invite them link. This new member will start following the thread automatically and will be able to see the messages from the one they were invited with.

Managing threads you follow #

You’ll get notified of any new replies to a thread you started, or had replied to, or if someone had mentioned you in the original message or any replies within a thread. If there’s a thread you didn’t engage in, you have the option to follow it and remain cognizant.
